Cornish Copper Company

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cornish Copper Company (CCCo) was originally a copper smelting business founded in Camborne, Cornwall in 1756.[1] However it soon moved to Hayle and by 1758 had constructed its copper smelting works there. By 1769 the company had built the grade II listed Copperhouse Dock.[2]



The CCCo also engaged in shipbuilding and was responsible for the following ships;

  • The Riviere, an iron schooner
  • The Penair, an iron schooner launched in 1861
